    I'll admit it isn't easy.

    Perhaps: If only you were here this instant would be perfect / this instant would be perfect if only you were here (my preference).

    More literally I guess you could say: This moment/instant only needs you to be perfect.

    I would choose either of these two since they carry the same meaning although ''If only you were here, the moment would be perfect'' is acceptable.

    Bonjour,
    Comment traduiriez-vous cette phrase en anglais : "Il ne manque plus que la signature de l'employeur"?
    Je ne pense pas que "miss" ou "lack" soient corrects dans ce contexte, donc je ne sais pas quoi utiliser.

    Cordialement,
    Roxiiie

    Now all that's/the only thing that's missing is the employer's signature.

    The only thing left is for the employer to sign.
